“Very Nice Restaurant Next to Topkapi Palace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

Excellent Ottoman food and great service...not rushed like every other restaurant we have been in in Istanbul. Nice views, a great place to eat outside if the weather is nice. The hot starters are exceptional. Price is fairly reasonable for the portions and quality. Highly recommend it.

“Very convenient lunch place near Topkapi/Agia Sofia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

Great service and friendly staff and good turkish traditional food. if you don't want to walk away from the area and continue with your visits, this is the perfect place. They do not serve alcohol anymore so no beer or wine....

“A midday mid tour lunch treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Situated just when your feet tell you to rest as you traipse around the Topkapi Palace, the Karakol offers a pleasant respite. While there is a café buffet, there are also tables with wait staff. The menu is extensive and pricey, but the salad offerings are sizable and delicious without a high price tag
